Question

If I have a lot of users, but most of which don’t need OrCAD software. Is there a way I can control which users are able to use the OrCAD licenses?

 

Solution

This can be accomplished through a FlexNet Options file using any single or combination of the INCLUDE, EXCLUDE, and RESERVE Options.


The INCLUDE and EXCLUDE options can be used to allow or disallow specific users from specific licenses where the RESERVE option allows you to keep a number of licenses in reserve for specific users or groups.


Usage of these options are detailed in the FlexNet End Users Guide Chapter 13.
